“I... I don't regret leaving Bern with Princess Guinivere. However, I still am a native of Bern... It is painful to fight against my former allies.”
—Melady in a support conversation with Yoder

She is a renowned knight of Bern and captain of Princess Guinivere's guards. She has a younger brother, Zeiss. She is willing to follow Guinivere and join the Alliance army despite the risk of being labeled a traitor and leaving her country, family and lover, Galle, behind. After the war, Melady helped Queen Guinivere rebuild Bern.
Her wyvern is named Trifinne.

Melady has the potential to be your best unit, especially on Hard Mode where she gets a good boost to her bases. All of her stats save for Luck and Resistance are well above average, and she has the perks of being a flier. Her decent Con also allows her to use the heavier lances with less effort than Shanna and Thea. She can easily hold her own while unpromoted, and her flying utility will be very useful for the next few chapters after you get her. Once she's promoted, her stats will become very solid and she'll gain one of the most useful weapon types. She will easily cap Strength, Skill, and Speed before reaching level 20. Her excellent stats, mid-game join time, and flying utility makes her one of the best characters at the player's disposal, as well as the fact that she joins in a chapter where Killer Lances are sold, which don't slow her down, even when unpromoted.
Her brother will usually pale in comparison as he joins later and weaker and only has slightly better Strength and Defense in return. Zeiss is one of Melady's few support partners that can keep up with her, however. Both Zeiss and Treck will give Melady a good boost to her critical rate.
